    What type of woman would men opt for, a damsel in distress or an established, self-sufficient lady

    which women are more preferred by men: (a) women needing emotional and financial assistance or (b) self-sufficient stable women, given that beauty, age and other factors are the same.

    Not a man but in my opinion a damsel in distress. They like to feel like heros.

    I think that would depend on the man. As there are damsel in distress type women then there are men who would like to play hero. There are also men who prefer someone self-sufficient and stable, as they are not interested in drama but would prefer a partner and companion.

    Thanks for the answer.

    Interesting question...

    As a woman, I've found that I've attracted different men according to which role I was playing at the time.

    I'd always go for the established woman. Hands down.

    Any intelligent, mature, and self-respecting man would prefer an independent, self-sufficient, and aware woman. Men today value and respect women who are their equal. It is less stress on the relationship when a man has a self-sufficient and... read more
